OK, so I’m reading a really fun series right now that is basically a steampunk re-imagining of World War I. The “Leviathan
” series is just as cool as it sounds and involves fleets of massive airships/Zeppelins/flying whale-beasties. (And the final book comes out in two weeks — yay!)
Just in time for my “Leviathan” love, the Farmers Airship
is floating into Oklahoma City this weekend.
The airship is a Zeppelin, which is different than a blimp in that it has an internal framework. It’s one of only two Zeppelins flying in the world and it’s massive — 246 feet long (that’s longer than a Boeing 747). The airship can carry 12 passengers and offers views from every large window (including one from the bathroom), plus a 180-degree rear observation window dubbed the “love seat.”
The Zeppelin will dock at Wiley Post Airport and offer public flights Sept. 10 and 11. There are 30-minute sight-seeing flights or longer sunset flights available, plus charters. Check out the website
for reservation info.
